Virginia Woolf in London - 16 January, 1915

from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.1, 1915-1919, page 19:

I think the Hall (Coliseum) last night was worth while - in spite of draw backs.  What I like in Halls are 'turns' - comic singers, or men imitating Prima Donna's or Jugglers....there was a man who sang like a Prima Donna; & a patriotic Revue - people clapped Grey more than anyone.
